PropertyGrid, enable resizing of name's column width

At the moment, the width of the column "Display Name" and "Editor" are equal.
For example, if the PropertiGrid's width is 100px, then the header's width is 50px and the editor's width is 50px also.
If the PropertiGrid's width resize to 120px, then the width of the header is 60xp and the width of the editor is 60px.
This logic is not convenient.
Sometimes, the length of the "DisplayName" line is very short, and the value in the editor is longer. In this case equal width of columns without possibility to change them for user - it's not good for the user interface.
How can I make a resizeable width of the column in the PropertyGrid control?

I see this feature has been implemented under #154832. However, I cannot find out how this works. There is nothing in the documentation about it and I cannot find a sample anywhere. 

Could someone tell me how I can autosize the name column?

Hi Pim,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Before the release of version, the PropertyGrid does not have support to resize the Column of PropertyGrid. In release, we have implemented the feature to show the content present in the Property Columns by enabling the resizing support for Column of PropertyGrid. Also you can use this feature in our Getting Started sample. Please find the screenshot for the same.
